The defending-champion and top-ranked Georgia Bulldogs face the No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes on Saturday in the Peach Bowl, with a spot in the national championship game on the line. The winner of the CFP Semifinal in Atlanta will advance to the CFP National Championship against the winner of Saturday's earlier TCU vs. Michigan matchup. The Bulldogs (13-0) rolled through the regular season, winning all but one game by double digits, and beat LSU 50-30 in the SEC Championship Game. The Buckeyes (12-1) lost 45-23 to fellow semifinalist Michigan in their finale but got some help when USC lost to Utah in the Pac-12 title game.

Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. ET at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Caesars Sportsbook lists the Bulldogs as 5-point favorites in its latest Ohio State vs. Georgia odds, and the over/under for total points scored in the Peach Bowl is set at 61.5. (see up-to-date odds for bowl season on our college football odds page).
